decided to go slow and steady and be as accurate as possible - was worried the late start might get me caught at the end.
Wasnt much drift - 1 was a tad shakey but after that nailed all the controls through to 11, where i overshot adjusted hit the granite and came back.
12,-15 where perfect lines are nice and straight...
apparently I Have mispunched on 16. TBT is yet to have tiles up so cant be sure - but I thought i hit it however the more I am looking at it maybe I hit the river bed and the small cliff - was there a control point there?! I would be very surprised if i hit wrong control I am so diligent on checking the numbers.... well there is always a first will be disappointed if this is the case.
Consequently my straight line to 17 was off to the left about the appropriate distance for the other mistake. Met Wayne here and we brought it home together from there - met Daisy on the could on way to 19 control collecting 3 minutes after course close time... geez no messing around here haha. still 19/20 where out and we got them and finished the race.
tbh if I mispunched I will be gutted but would have been on baring and also within a short distance of where I was supposed to be so ill take it even though #disappoint.
Good area though - enjoyed the longer distance - start should have been earlier for the distance though - i did sub 330 which for me is good but course would have still be closed.
